CarnaudMetalbox celebrates World Skills achievements
Earlier this month’ CarnaudMetalbox’s team of apprentices completed the World Skills competition finishing sixth overall.
The team manufacturing category was reportedly one of the most challenging with many countries pulling out last minute, with some not finishing the task at all.
They are the fourth team of apprentices from CMB to have been selected for team UK, this selection reflects the company’s highly advanced engineering skills, technical expertise and commitment to developing the engineers and beverage can makers of tomorrow.
They were among 37 young trainees representing the UK in 32 disciplines including industries as diverse as engineering, construction, creative arts and logistics. More than 1,600 apprentices and students competed in Kazan from around 70 countries. Both the opening and closing ceremonies were shown live on TV and streamed around the world.
Andrew Truelove, general manager at CarnaudMetalbox Engineering, commented: “Representing your country on the world stage is no easy feat. It takes hard work, determination and a high level of skill and we are thrilled that our young engineers went to the finals in Kazan; to just be selected is an outstanding achievement and a fine testament to the value and quality of the apprenticeship schemes we are proud to run at CMB Engineering.
“Our record of representing the company and the UK at these finals is second to none and something we take great pride in.”
